It kinda looks like a helicopter landed on a learjet and a speed boat crashed into its back (dont laugh, Ive seen it happen) possibly, it may have been a dream :D

But its definatley different, would like to see it flying.

It was an aircraft, used I think in the early stages of the tiltrotor technology.
